Mrs Brugmans

Welcome to Year 3/4 !

A huge ‘hello’ to all parents, carers and children in Year 3/4.  We hope that you had a good summer and that children have been looking forward to returning to school.  After our successful ‘Alverton Year of Books’ we will be introducing the concept of ‘Vibrant Vocabulary’.  There will be many exciting events and activities that you be able to participate in.

 Our topic for this term is ‘Stig Of The Dump’ and the children will be learning about ‘Early Man’.   Science will see the children learning about the Human Body,  Food Chains and Teeth. We will also be learning about how sound travels through the air.  We will be having drumming lessons every Friday morning with a specialist Drumming Teacher, Jools, and throughout the year we will be performing our drumming.  Children should have a PE kit in school every day.

 Children arrived at school looking very smart on Monday.  Could you please make sure that uniform is named.

 Choices for school dinner must be made by Monday.  If meals are not chosen in advance, children will receive the meal of the day.

 Homework will be set on Wednesdays and returned on Mondays. In Year 3/4, we ask that children are supported in their ten minutes of daily reading by being listened to by an adult or sibling and then having their planners signed and dated, including the page numbers read. As you know, the school subscribes to a number of websites which can be used to support home learning and all children have logins and passwords to use these websites or apps:

 Finally, don't forget to ask your child if they can tell you how to keep themselves safe when using any device to be online. Thanks to the annual Safer Internet Day activities, the children should be well-versed in all the tricks and tips needed to help them to keep as safe and sound as possible! If you are unsure of how to help, please come along and have a chat or alternatively, why not check out https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk as a starting point for all things e-safety related?

 Here’s to a happy and healthy new term at Alverton!
